    BIM Troublemaker: An "Architecture Degree" is the new "English Major"

    Following on from this post about Phil Read's class on How to Get Ahead in Architecture, I found these two columns via Architectural Record that make good reading.

    The architecture meltdown

    One of the coolest creative-class careers has cratered with the economy. Where does architecture go from here?

    Featuring great quotes like:
    • These days, “We are making less than a cleaning lady,”
    • as an educator, I feel like an ayatollah sending kids running into the minefield
    • Architects are supposed to be serving society, but I think we’re struggling to maintain our position in society.

    and this article
    Want a Job? Go to College, and Don’t Major in Architecture

    Featuring this chart which shows that architecture graduates have a higher unemployment rate than artists!

    Though i am not sure if they are counting the "sandwich-artists" at SUBWAY.

    And things are still ****** in Asia too so don't get any ideas.
